Indeed.Together with the fact that backpackers create their own world in their Oz travels.

Have comer across a few now that returned some years later to WA to live,only to recall it as being different in their travelling days.
Boring i'm afraid is the word that comes to mind.

Doubt very much if too many folk would settle in West Australia due to the excitment.
Most common term i recall is that it's a great place to raise kids(an immediate turn off ) and how wonderful the weather is.
Indeed both rather mundane subjects in the eyes of some.

My friend's lived in or traveled to many countries due to his parents' line of work, and from his description, Indonesia sounds like a hideously boring place.

Are you being humorous or are you suggesting they're rebelling or fighting out of boredom?

I found Switzerland and the Scandinavian countries rather boring. Not that they are not beautiful countries.. but it is just kind of boring, not much going on there.

I think it might be better to say regions or cities/towns. I've traveled to quite a few countries and I will admit that some areas are more boring than others. For example, someone who lives in the more rural areas of northern England may claim that England is more boring, but someone from Manchester might see England as an exciting country. I think the southern half of the U.S. is extremely boring b/c of all the rural areas, but I've also been to places like NYC and it was very lively.
